Written by Carlos one night while he was sitting outside his apartment, Samba Pa Ti is essentially a two-part song, separated by a short bridge. The first section features a beautiful guitar melody over a simple chord progression, played by Gregg Rolie on the Hammond B3 organ. Its tempo is that of a slow Samba. Though this part is technically in the key of G major, the melody and use of numerous minor chords lends it a haunting air.
